Though the brutal TX heat is back, it means plenty of time for grilling, and this was a fun red blend to pair with burgers.

A fun field blend where everything but the kitchen sink seems to be in here…mostly zin, with 6-7 lesser known varietals. A bit funky upon opening (pop and pour), this opened to reveal a brambly, tobacco leaf, weightless yet jammy profile. Soft and supple mixed fruits aromatically (mostly red and black fruits), with some added woody notes (more earthy than oak driven). The mid palate here reminds you this is zin to its core with plenty of black cherry compote and then the vibrant acidity driven finish sports some black pepper and spicy rhubarb. Mostly integrated at this point, I think this is at its apex.

Le Brutal de Jean-Marc Alsace Gewürztraminer Blend

Beautiful amber color with a slight haziness. Nose is earthy and then a hint of wildflower honey. Taste reads less sweet than the nose would lead you to believe, but offers a nice citrus minerality and a bit of apricot yum. — 4 months ago

Via Revolucionaria Brutal Torrontés 2019

Has the complexity of a desert wine and smells of peaches, but has a fresh floral taste with lingering sweetness. Nice to accompany pasta. — 5 months ago

Tenutæ Lageder Löwengang Südtirol-Alto Adige Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Superb structure to the tannins. Needs time (despite brutal decanting). May well go to much higher with another 5-8 years. Try if see. — a month ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

At first there is forest soil, mushrooms, then cedar, tobacco, and there is still fruit with black currant mainly. This is rather complex. At first the palate was a little bit harsh around the edges, with pointy tannins and a brutal mouthfeel. Getting it 3 hours of air helped the wine settle and now there is a velvety mouthfeel, tannins roll in mid palate and there is a bright fruit note all along. It's not powerful, but that might be a vintage thing, but it's subtle and complex. A long finish with fruit and a bit of a salty, meaty note comes up in the end. Not the best clos du marquis I've had but a good, solid wine in an off vintage. — 5 months ago
